As I sat down to think what I should write my LAST blog about, I decided to go with how fortunate and lucky I have been this whole semester.
My team is the BEST team I have ever had the pleasure of working with during my three years at Louisiana State University. We did not pick each other, but I could not have asked for a better team placement! Thanks, Dr. Moore! We all get along so well, I don’t think we had one argument all semester. Everyone has been so respectful of one another, a quality that is vital to a successful team. I attribute our campaign’s success to the teamwork and effort put forth by each and every member. Also, ML Woodruff was the client to have, and I am beyond ecstatic that I got a chance to work with him. He was easy going, but driven. He wanted us to work hard for the Istrouma Sports Organization, but he wanted to be a part of it every step of the way. Go ML! He got us involved in other ways, which I firmly believe benefited us and our campaign in the long run. For the most part, I think we had a fairly smooth sailing this semester.
Why else am I so lucky? Well, I’m fortunate enough to have a job waiting for me at Marsh Houston when I graduate. I recently started to realize how few people are in my position. The majority of my friends and classmates do not really know where they will be three months from now, but I do. I’m thankful for all the opportunities I’ve had, and I wish nothing but the best to each and every one of my friends and classmates. It is unfortunate that we are entering into the professional world at a time where the economy is in a less than stellar position.
I also have the greatest support system at home that a young woman could ever ask for. In recent months I’ve been asked multiple times “how much does it suck that your parents are divorced?” First off, I think that question is beyond rude. Secondly, it really made me think. I came to the conclusion that it does not suck in the least bit! Instead of two amazing parents, I have four. I have four extended families, which means I get to have so many more cousins! I consider myself lucky! My cousins are my world. My family had some rough times in the last couple of years, but everything is turning around. We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming two new babies into the family in the last few months, and we’re expecting another one soon! I’ve learned that life is precious and we need to be forever grateful for the times we do have with our families and friends.
